CORUM, TURKEY — Two flour mills, established by Alapala Machine Industry & Trade, Inc., celebrated their official grand openings at the beginning of December.
The first was a 250-tonne-per-day flour mill in Tokmok, Kyrgyzstan on Dec. 2. Alapala installed the new flour milling line on top of the old line. The old 250-tonne-per-day milling section consisted of 18 roller mills, six units of purifying machines and six units of sifters. The new line Alapala supplied includes 12 roller mills, four purifiers and two plansifters. Alapala’s update reduces the quantity of grinding and sifting equipment, and therefore the energy-output ratio was minimized.
The flour mill was financed by Kazakhstani investors. Alapala said it is the only wheat processing plant in Kyrgyzstan that completely conforms the international standards.
The second flour mill recently commissioned by Alapala celebrated its grand opening on Dec. 6 in Darkhan, Mongolia. Alapala said the facility has a capacity of 300 tonnes per day and produces three types of flour that are the most reliable in the Mongolian market.
The project included:
• Designing and building a steel construction building.
• Designing the diagram of the milling section, engineering the design of the flour-milling plant, assembly and start-up.
The commissioned flour mill is one of the largest wheat processing plants in Mongolia. The flour mill is completely automated, minimizing the quantity of the staff.
